With a constant rise in annual carbon emissions, global warming has become a serious challenge posing threat to all the life forms on the planet. Emission from automobiles contributes greatly in adding to these already soaring pollution levels. According to a study, more than 75% of the air pollution in Dubai is caused by vehicles. So to combat against these toxic levels of pollution, several companies have introduced electric cars with zero percent carbon emission. This is done to replace fuel run cars with the electric ones and take a step forward towards environmental conservation. People have been encouraged to switch to electric cars to improve the quality of air in the UAE.
